Hiring an experienced defense attorney who keeps current with DUI laws can help you avoid jail time. There are options, depending on the circumstance. Fresno County has allowed some offenders to serve their custody time in rehabilitation programs, house arrest with GPS monitors, and/or with a "SCRAM" monitor which may or may not have GPS activated.
SCRAM: Scram monitors are a continuous alcohol monitor that attached to a clients leg, like a GPS, but the SCRAM monitor detects alcohol in a clients sweat, and reports the presence of alcohol to the monitoring company, and subsequently to the court. The web address below will provide you with more information on the SCRAM monitor.
